Awesome place, just as good as (if not better) than the Sydney location with several floors of seating area. Great taplist of 25 beers -- you can do custom paddles of 5 beers for $17.50 which really isn’t too bad for Melbourne. Service is friendly enough. A must stop when in town.

Great service, large selection on tap (never needed to go to bottles yet). Food is decent, especially the smaller snacks. Probably my go to bar in Melbourne if i’m going for a drink.

Best place in Melbourne but wished they did a better job curating the beers. Some good ones, but intermixed with a lot of noise.

We were there relatively early on a tuesday for lunch. Food was good - middling. Tap selection was great, but was informed by staff that a number of them hadn’t been kegged yet, which was disappointing. Staff seemed knowledgeable but were a tad uninterested at times.

We came here first time on 19.2.2015. It’s a really good beer bar. They have two bars - on the ground and on the first floor and a small place outside. Very nicely decorated, wooden interior with posters and beer bottles. Tap selection is quite awesome: 20 beers mainly from Australia’s best craft breweries, only two international ones: Budvar, De Proefbrouweri. That’s what you are looking for when you are on beer journey in Australia. Also good bottle assortment, around 20: Mikkeller, Gueuzerie Tilquin, just to mention the highlights. Could only have 2 beers this day, but we will come back for sure! We came back some days later after watching a World Cup 2015 cricket game at the Melbourne cricket stadium and spent several hours here. The food was very delicious (pie, sandwich, fries) and the beers great as expected - highlights were the Chocolate Stout from Holgate brewhouse on hand pump! and the FigJam IPA from Burleigh Brewing Co (the most intense beer I had during this trip). Can just confirm again this is the best beer place we visited during our 2015 Australia trip.

Incredible beer selection with some really interesting choices. A lot more modest on the food front. Real homey Irish pub vibe. Tad bit on the pricy side.

Loved everything about this place, except the staff. Please note this place definitely sets the pace on tap list quality in Melbourne.
